“‘The human understanding,’ wrote Bacon, ‘once it has adopted opinions, either because they were already accepted and believed or because it likes them draws everything else to support and agree with them. And though it may meet a greater number and weight of contrary instances, it will, with great and harmful prejudice, ignore or condemn or exclude them by introducing some distinction, in order that the authority of those earlier assumptions may remain intact and unharmed.”
